Guilty! If I was wearing a jacket over that, I'd have had the NYT in my chest pocket as a steezy accessory. It's been awhile since my modelling days although that Satorialist guy keeps stalking me and asking me to pose with a bike and sockless doublemonks.

 

Just call me Gerry 'Sprezz' Nelson.

Yeah from the 2 for 1k thing although the other one went to my twin brother for my wedding, so I still ended up paying 1k for 1 suit really!

Maybe your shoes didn't like Paris but had always wanted to visit Slough.

Jimbosaurus - Yes! It's a Sunspel long sleeved polo from End Clothing. What did you order?

 

The Ernesto - shoes? I have a few but then again, too few to mention ... peepwall[1].gif

GST is 10% or (n/11) depending which end you are looking at - but I thought duty was only on material input NOT value added? I also thought most duties were down at 5% or less.

No GST change on foreign goods just yet

The federal government has acknowledged the $1000 threshold at which GST is collected on goods purchased from abroad is high by international standards, but has rejected calls for an immediate reduction.

Instead, and in line with the taskforce that analysed the so-called "low value parcel processing", Labor will begin preparing business cases and possible implementation plans for reform, with a final response to be released in 2013.

"A decision cannot be made regarding the possible lowering of the threshold until these business cases and possible implementation plans for reforms to low value parcel processing have been prepared," Assistant Treasurer David Bradbury said in a statement today.

He said the costs associated with any possible changes had to be determined.

"As the taskforce's report made clear, there are no simple or quick solutions," he said.

He said around 58 million parcels entered Australia under the low value import threshold each year.

As such, lowering the threshold before putting in place significant reforms to processing capabilities would cause major disruptions to the international mail service and result in major inconvenience to the businesses and consumers that rely upon it.

"Without greater efficiencies in the system, the cost to taxpayers of collecting the GST on low value parcels would also outstrip the revenue that is collected," he said.

He said online retail sales, both domestic and overseas, still only accounted for around six per cent of overall retail sales.

"While there has been strong growth in online retail sales, published data indicates that the majority of sales are made with domestic retailers, with online sales by international retailers accounting for less than 1.5 per cent of total Australian retail sales revenue," he said.

"While this is not the biggest challenge confronting the retail sector, the government does recognise that on the basis of fairness and tax neutrality, Australian retailers should not be disadvantaged by taxation arrangements which favour overseas retailers."

Yes, I thought duty was 5% and the GST was 10% - it sucks that it applies to the transport cost as well.

Inverallan chunky knit cardigan, completely wrong season but I've been looking at them for ages, it will give me something to look forward to when winter rolls around again.

hmm duty, to my knowledge should only be 5% regardless of country of manufacture, so I'd look in to that. I've only ever paid 5% from Italy and other countries though haven't imported from the US.

Have a look at this -
